#5 Cheapest inner city suburbs + cheaper alternatives

by Kate Watt, Marketing Manager 21 September 2022

Want to buy a slice of inner city life but don’t want to pay an inner city price tag?

Well, that’s probably not going to happen. But pockets of relative affordability exist where value hunters should start their search.

Four of Brissie’s five most affordable inner city suburbs are here on the north side, reports Domain. Check out the suburbs below and the median house price.

  • Spring Hill $1.02 million
  • Kelvin Grove $1.13 million
  • Windsor $1.22 million
  • Newmarket $1.18 million
  • Annerley $1.16 million

A bit pricey for your budget? Might be time to rethink your postcode preferences.

With hybrid work dominating many workplaces these days, you can move further out to get better value without the lifestyle sacrifice of a long commute.

Vibrant middle ring hubs like Chermside offer extensive retail, dining and entertainment options without an inner city price premium.

If you want a leafier lifestyle with the amenity, then Chermside West is to Chermside what New Farm is to the City. Home to green spaces in the form of several nature reserves, as well as ever-improving restaurants, cafes and shops.

For convenience, it’s hard to pass up Albany Creek or Aspley with large retail and commercial precincts and several schools. Yes, some pockets are a little daggy. That’s why we like to think of them as the middle north equivalent of Fortitude Valley.
